    14T freewheel

    Hi there guys. ive had a search of this forum before asking this? but i have a 2010 Genesis i0
    http://www.genesisbikes.co.uk/bikes/...n/io-/io/specs
    This bike came with a 16T shimano freewheel as standard but i find that the gearing is a little too easy for me even on trails. i was wondering if you guys could point me in the direction of a 14T freewheel.
    Ive had a seach on google and only found BMX freewheels. will this fit?
    Thanks.

    Nope, those bmx freewheels with 15t or less are threaded 1.29" x 24 tpi, for fixed-gear hubs. 16t or larger are 1.375" x 24 tpi for freewheel hubs like yours. You're better off getting a bigger chainring.

    They're 30x1mm. The 1.29x24 tpi is reverse threaded for lockrings for fixed gears. It would not work on a drive side because of the reverse threads.

    But no, it will not fit. Get a larger chainring. 104x4

    I guess I am missing something. Are you saying the inner circle diameter is different on the smaller cogs?

    I think he's looking for a freewheel, not a cog
